Leveraging Hiring Managers as Your Secret Recruiting Weapon

General session at LinkedIn Talent Connect, Las Vegas 2016. The secret sauce to great recruiting? According to John Vlastelica, Managing Director, Recruiting Toolbox, and consultant and trainer to companies like PepsiCo, Booking, Nike, Nestle, and Amazon, it’s actually not technology, killer branding, or an efficient recruiting process. All of those things are key, but the secret sauce is all about getting your hiring managers engaged; that’s how you win. In this fun, how-to session, John will share how to:

  • Engage your hiring managers in attraction and sourcing
  • Position yourself as a Talent Advisor and partner
  • Create a culture of recruiting ownership in your hiring manager community

No theoretical consultant speak here. John will share real-world, actionable strategies and examples of how recruiting teams are getting managers to do more than play a passive role in hiring. @vlastelica www.recruitingtoolbox.com
